Leguizamo will offer one performance only at the New Jersey theatre on Feb. 14 at 8 PM. The Colombian chameleon, who first caught the eyes of the theatre world with his one-man show Mambo Mouth, recently returned to Broadway with a limited engagement of his Tony-nominated show Sexaholix... a love story. Leguizamo exorcises his demons in Sexaholix, a comedic evening covering the many stages of relationships, including dating, the chase, breaking up, break-up sex, make-up sex, marriage and divorce. The show originally ran at Broadway's Royale Theatre. Opening Nov. 4, 2001, the production extended twice before finally closing Feb. 10, 2002. The work, nominated for the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event, has played on stages across the country and was taped for airings on HBO.
Leguizamo received a Drama Desk Award for Best Solo Performance for his Spic O-Rama. His stage work, Freak: A Semi Demi Quasi Pseudo Autobiography, garnered him a Tony nomination. Also a film star, he appeared as Toulouse Lautrec in Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge"; in "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar" in drag as Miss Chi-Chi Rodriguez; and in Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet" as a Virgin Mary-gun toting Tybalt. His biggest role came in the 1999 Spike Lee film "The Summer of Sam." Leguizamo just starred in the HBO drama "Undefeated," which he also directed.
